Yet, the real sources of modern voter fraud continues. Hacked voting machines and mail in ballots. At least you will sleep better thinking illegal immigrants and dead people won't be voting.
Showing id when you vote is one step closer to eleminating the fraud problem. If a person wants to vote then getting and presenting identification isn't too much to expect.
Kudos Pennsylvania !
look it's pretty simple... republicans don't want anyone that will help Obama win the election to vote...all you people out there in america that do not have a republican-OKed picture ID are not americans.
republicans made sure that those people have no right to vote...talk about traitors
an idea...have the republican party pay FOR ALL the voter ID's needed, no exceptions
Goof Lord... drop the hysterics!
Nobody's right to vote is being impacted. Go get your FREE ID and feel free to exercise your right to vote. What's the freaking problem?

I consider myself a left leaning moderate. However, when I cast a vote it is based on the candidate and the issues NOT on the party.
Can someone explain to me why they have a problem showing a valid form of identification at the polls. Its just common sense to me. I don't want any BS response about showing an ID infringing on your right. If you go to the store and purchase something with a credit card or check the store has the right to ask for proper ID. Is that infringing on your right too? I actually welcome them doing that because it shows me they are trying to prevent fraudulent charges.
What adult in todays society does not carry a valid form of ID?

Good, I'm so glad that a judge actually has a clue. Now if only every state would do the same we can stop a bunch of voter fraud perpetrated by the DNC.

Maybe I´m already brainwashed but when you get to vote in Germany, you get a card that you bring to the voting room, with you passport or ID and then you are allowed to vote. I see nothing sinister about that. Am I missing something?

I wonder why there isn't too many supporters of the Defeat of the Law... trying to defend that side of things...
Because it is indefensible. Anyone with a brain listening to the arguments that it isn't a good law must look at the attorneys presenting the case and wonder: These folks need to be disbarred...
The suit sought a preliminary injunction of the law, which is to take effect next month. It was filed on behalf of 10 Pennsylvanians facing difficulties obtaining the proper ID, including a 93-year-old woman who lost her only form of identification when her purse was stolen. Their lawyers said it was disturbing that Judge Simpson did not recognize the constitutional right to vote as sufficiently fundamental, especially because the state acknowledged that it had no evidence of voter fraud at polling stations.
Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups opposed to the law said the judge was taking too much on faith. Forms for alternate identification have not been finalized, and staffing of public agencies dealing with such things has not been increased. They also said absentee-ballot rules in Pennsylvania are stricter than Judge Simpson implied.
